Gorilla Tattoos!

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Here are a couple Gorilla Tattoos that I had the pleasure of tattooing recently. The first Gorilla tattoo is on my friend Molly. Gorillas are such a fascinating subject for tattoos. They are such intelligent, loyal, family oriented creatures, yet also a fierce, powerful beast. I would not complain if I got to make more Gorilla […]

Gorilla Tattoo

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Well I somehow managed to slack off on posting any tattoos for awhile. Here’s a gorilla tattoo that I made on Casey. This is such a fun image to tattoo. As with any snarly animal head, you can capture so much detail and the baring teeth make for a very dramatic tattoo. More angry ape tattoos […]

Lion Tattoo

Friday, April 15th, 2016

I recently had the pleasure of putting this lion tattoo on Ryan’s forearm. This was a super fun tattoo to make, as it is mimics the look of the classic crawling panther tattoo, but with a golden lion. There’s something so powerful about the lion as a tattoo, or any large cat for that matter. […]

Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing Tattoo

Friday, April 8th, 2016

Pelle sub agnina latitat mens saepe lupina: Under a sheep’s skin often hides a wolfish mind. I recently had the pleasure of making this wolf in sheep’s clothing tattoo on Ben. This is a nice change of pace from all the other wolf tattoos I’ve made recently…not that I ever would get sick of wolf tattoos! […]

Hey Ladies!

Friday, April 1st, 2016

Here’s a couple lady face tattoos I’ve made recently. Besides snarly beasts and birds, human faces are probably my favorite subject matter for tattoo imagery. They’re really diverse in what you can work into the composition of the tattoo. What I’d really like to explore further is making them more dynamic with expressions and movement. Mimi recently […]

Hand and Rose Tattoo

Friday, March 25th, 2016

My good friend Maren recently got her first tattoo from me after many years. I was super excited to do this hand and rose tattoo on her, she is off to a great start in collecting tattoos. Next up for her is a lady head with some flowers and arrows tattooed on her shoulder, it’s […]

Eagle Tattoo!

Friday, March 4th, 2016

Here is one of my favorite images for a chest tattoo, an eagle. This eagle tattoo is on a good friend of the shop, John. John is a MPLS firefighter and all around awesome dude. It’s surprising that after all these years I’ve only done a very small handful of eagle tattoos as chest pieces. […]

Pretty lady with a sharp dagger

Friday, February 19th, 2016

Here’s a fun one I got to tattoo on Justin. I’m sure I’ve written many times over how much I love to tattoo lady faces and daggers, so you can imagine the joy that washed over my face when Justin came in with this idea. I tattooed this one quite some time ago, so naturally […]

Native Beauty

Saturday, January 16th, 2016

I got to tattoo this pretty native gal on Marissa not too long ago. This is by far in my top five favorite things to tattoo. Native American imagery is especially enjoyable to tattoo as it conjures up feelings of old Americana. My only real qualm with it is it frequently walks the line between […]

Red Headed Pin Up Girl Tattoo

Friday, December 4th, 2015

This lovely gal is tattooed on my client, Jason. Jason has been an exemplary client, giving me lots of freedom in designing his tattoos. In this case he wanted a pin up girl tattoo, and being that he is a very proud red head, we had  to give her some bright red hair and freckles.Thanks […]
